What does it mean, he cannot show you the place until he gives me the keys?
Usually when someone gets the keys, it means that they already rendered the money for the rent and the security...
Is the place leased sight unseen? Some firms do it but I would stick with a reputable firm.
And why are you going after this specific person? And don't forget if it seems that it is too good to be true then it is too good to be true.
Best of luck!

I am currently going through the same thing I wonder if he/she has the same email. The individual seems nice but I fear for in the individuals lack of grammar and understanding of the English language. I am actually excited to see where exactly this goes because I would never give bank information out, or my social security number or even my real address. I wish deep down it was real because the offer is to good to be true. Interestingly enough the same house I am looking at to rent (or was looking at) isnon this site for sale. So I know it's a scam.
NEVER give your social security number until you have viewed an apartment and need apartment approval.
Although these documents may be required to rent an apartment in New York, the general rule is if it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
My advice is to hire a broker or real estate sales agent to help.
